Kinetta

Kinetta ★★★½

Every day is like Sunday. Every day is silent and grey.

Three people in an an off-season holiday resort spend their time engaged in various oddball activities in order to occupy the empty days. That's what I think was happening anyway. It's a film that doesn't yield a great deal of meaning on a first watch.

Lanthimos clearly has a thing for bodies in motion. A lot of what passes for action here consists of halting reconstructions of violent interactions or people following very precise instructions dictating exactly how they should move. Most of the time it's more like a performance art piece than an attempt to construct a narrative. I sort of liked it though, I think.
